ValueSet: Cancer Stage Type Value Set

Codes that identify the kind of stage reported in an Observation, necessary to correctly interpret the value associated with a staging Observation. In terms of the SNOMED CT hierarchy, these codes represent observable entities. If the staging system used to determine the stage is not implicit in this code, the staging system must be separately recorded in Observation.method. More specific staging profiles, if available, should be consulted before determining the correct code.

No Expansion for this valueset (Unknown Code System)

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Level A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. In this scheme, some codes are under other codes, and imply that the code they are under also applies
System The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance)
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
Comments Additional notes about how to use the code
